In mem'ry of the days we've passed to- 

Through sweet and sad, through fair and 
darksome weather; 

Our book is made, and in it we may trace 

And find each happening and each dear 



Page 5 

Kind friends, we would the prologue speak— 

We offer you our pages; 

We pray you'll not perfection seek 

Nor wisdom of the sages. 

You'll find therein our glimpse of life 

In this year nineteen ten, 

'Tis writ out in our fairest style, 

Tho' with unskillful pen. 

And now sweet friends, wilt take the book? 

Wilt sympathize and smile ? 

Wilt walk along the path with us 

Where we have been awhile? 

And lest you think the year's been dull — 

But cares and books has been, 

Our work was all unmixed with joy — 

Why— prithee look within !

Tune— "Believe me if all those endearing young charms," 

St Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be, 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling; 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's! how great is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — - 

Of earnestness, wisdom, and love.

3 Prtef Glimpse at tfje ^tetorp 
of g>t. Jflarp's; 

St. Mary's School was founded in 1842, by the Rev. Aldert Smedes, 
D.D. The opening day was May 12th. 

The present location was first set apart as the site of an Episcopal 
school in 1832, when influential churchmen, carrying out a plan proposed 
by Bishop Ives, purchased the present "Grove" as a part of a tract of 
160 acres, to be used in establishing a Church School for boys. First 
East Rock House, then West Rock House and Main Building were built 
for use in this boys' school. But the school, though it started out with 
great promise, proved unsuccessful and was closed; and the property 
passed back into private hands. 

Bishop Ives was instrumental in 1812 in getting Dr. Aldert Smedes, at 
that time conducting a successful girls' school in New York City, to come 
to Raleigh to establish St. Mary's, which he did in May, 1842, as stated. 

From the first the school was a success, and for the remainder of his 
life Dr. Smedes allowed nothing to interrupt the work he had undertaken. 
During the years of the War between the States St. Mary's was at the 
same time school and refuge for those driven from their homes. It is a 
tradition of which her daughters are proud, that during those years of 
struggle her doors were ever open, and that at one time the family of the 
beloved President of the Confederacy were sheltered within her walls. 

On April 25, 1877, Dr. Smedes died, leaving St. Mary's to the care of 
his son, Rev. Dr. Bennett Smedes, who had been during his father's life- 
time a teacher in the school. This trust was regarded as sacred, and for 
twenty-two years, in which he spared neither expense nor pains, Dr. 
Bennett Smedes carried on his father's work for education. 

During this eventful half-century, St. Mary's was in the truest sense a 
Church school, but it was a private enterprise. 

In 1897, at the suggestion of Dr. Bennett Smedes, the Diocese of North 
Carolina purchased the real property from Mr. Cameron, the private 
owner, and the school equipment from Dr. Smedes; and the School was 
chartered by the General Assembly. The corporate title is "The Trus- 
tees of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C." 

Dr. Smedes continued as Rector until his death in 1899. He was suc- 
ceeded by Dr. Bratton, who resigned to become Bishop of Mississippi in 
1903. Rev. McNeely DuBose succeeded Dr. Bratton in September, 1903, 
and was in turn succeeded by the present Rector, Rev. Geo. W. Lay, in 
July, 1907. 

During the life of the founder St. Mary's was a high-class school for 
the general education of girls, the training being regulated by the needs 

Page 10 

and exigencies of the years. Pupils finished their training without "grad- 
uating." In 1879, under the second Rector, set courses were established, 
covering college preparatory work without sacrificing the special features 
which the school stands for, and in June, 1879, the first class was regularly 

For the first fifteen years of St. Mary's there were but the three build- 
ings that now form the central group. The chapel was on the first floor 
of East Rock; the rector and his family lived in the east half of the second 
floor of the Main Building; dormitories of the style of those still surviv- 
ing were on both floors of West Rock and on the second floor of East Rock 
as well as on the third floor of the Main Building. 

In 1867 the Chapel was built by the owner of the property according to 
Dr. Smedes' wishes. It was designed by Upjohn, a famous architect of 
the time, and the first floor of East Rock became available for other pur- 
poses. During the war as many individuals found a home in the school 
as have ever been accommodated since, but there was much "doubling up." 
In ordinary times, however, the full number of boarding pupils was usually 
less than a hundred. 

In 1884 the Art Building, intended for recitation purposes only, was 
added to the equipment. The building was scarcely finished when it 
caught fire and was entirely burned, but without delay the present build- 
ing was erected on the same foundations. No need for further new build- 
ings was felt from this time until the coming of Dr. Bratton, when his 
magnetic influence and the inauguration of an active campaign for stu- 
dents for what was now the Diocesan School led to a complete overflow- 
ing of the buildings. As speedily as possible funds were secured and Dr. 
Bratton had the North Dormitory and Rectory erected, meantime using 
the old Blount mansion across the street as an overflow dormitory. 

The loss of the wooden Infirmary by fire in 1904 led to the building of 
the new brick Infirmary in that year; the next year the Chapel was rebuilt 
and enlarged through the efforts of the Alumnae; in 1907 the Auditorium 
was erected as the Eliza Battle Pittman Memorial; and in 1909, the 
wings to the Main Building, with the improved front, were built, and 
Clement Hall, established through the bequest of Miss Evelyn Clement, 
a St. Mary's teacher of the '50s, was finished. Clement Hall is the Dining 
room-Gymnasium building. The School can now accommodate 175 
boarders in residence at the school, the largest number that St. Mary's 
has ever accommodated. 

May the Alma Mater live long and increasingly prosper!

We stand before a great and lofty gate 

That rises up and upward toward the sky, 

Whose shining portals open wide are thrown, 
That we may pass beyond to where doth lie, 

All in the brightness of the sun, a road 

That stretehes far beyond the reach of eye. 

We pause a while, and look back o'er the way 

Where we have walked, and plucked the little flowers 

That nodded gaily, by the soft breeze blown, 
And shed their fragrance o'er the passing hours; 

Where all the air w r as filled with songs of birds 
That caroled blithely from their leafy bowers. 

But in the broader way that lies beyond 
Grow flowers of rarer hue and sweeter smell, 

And sweeter are the songs the birds sing there 
Than those that in the past we loved full well; 

For they are in a deeper, fuller tone 

Than lies within the power of tongue to tell. 

We will not backward look, but rather turn 
Our faces toward the joys that still await; 

Remembering the word that ever yet 

Has guided us in small things and in great, 

We leave behind the path that we have trod, 
And crying "En Avant!" pass through the gate.

Music hath power, 'tis fitly writ, 

To soothe the savage soul; 

And when a maid of Ila's charm 

Can make the organ roll 

Our saintly wings come peeping out 

And sprout a little bit.

We're a merry band of Seniors, 

Of Seniors! of Seniors! 
A merry band with lots of sand 
And every member simply grand — 

We're just too cute for words! 

We're a merry band of Seniors, 

Of Seniors! of Seniors! 
Our brains are just stupendous 
And our knowledge is tremendous 

And we're just too cute for words! 

Aren't you truly glad you've seen us? 

You've seen us, you've seen us! 
We're a blessing for your eyes, 
That's a fact we won't disguise 

For we're just too cute for words! 
H. E. H. 

Happy and innocent, guileless and sweet, 

Girls of St. Mary's are we; 
Artless, ingenious, prudent and neat — 

This you can readily see. 
Gloriously radiant like dew on the trees 

Shines each particular she, 
But while you are looking I ask you to please 

Pay special attention to me — 
To me — to me — 

Pay special attention to me — 
To me — to me— 

Pay special attention to me. 

To each one's deportment each other attends 

From breakfast to six o'clock tea; 
But we never talk scandal or backbite our friends 

This to you plain must be. 
It grieves me however to have to confess 

That these charming Seniors you see 
Have all of them faults in temper or dress, 
Yes, serious faults — but me! 

But me— but me — 
Yes, serious faults — but me — 

But me — but me — 
Yes, serious faults — but me!

JBcing: tije Warp of tlje Class of 1910 
Jfrom September, 1006, to Map, 1910 


Sept., 1906. Twenty-four green little Freshmen, we enrolled ourselves as students 
of St. Mary's. Beginning of our four years' tug of war. 

Nov. Led by four of our number-four fun-loving Preps, of the year before, we organ- 
ized as the Freshman Class; otherwise known as the Class of 1910. Motto; "En avant." 

True to our motto, Ruth Mardre distinguished herself by making the highest mark 
on the first English test. 

Nov. 24. Three of the class made their first appearance on the stage in "Who's to 
Inherit?" (St. Etheldreda's Chapter.) 

Jan., 1907. Rebe and Mary Mitchell made 100 on English Literature exam.! 

"Did you pass on Math?" each Freshman asks every other Freshman. C. Math., 
the bane of the Freshman's existence! We begin Geometry after exams. — no more 
Algebraic equations to be worked out — 20 a day. 

Feb We are reading Richard III under Mr. Stone, and feel as important as the 
Senior English class. 

April. Botany walks begin. Analyzing, pressing and drawing of flowers. 

May. End of our Freshman year. Oh, we'll never be little Freshmen again! 


Sept., 1907. As Sophomores we meet this time, numbering twenty. Some of our 
old members have left us and some new ones have joined our ranks. 

Nov. First "important meeting" of the Sophomores held this month. Class organ- 
ized. Long and heated discussion. Everybody talked at once. Final result — change 
of everything except the motto and the Secretary. 

Jan., 1908. A thunder-bolt has fallen among us. Stories (real, true, true stories) 
must be written within one week's time! Whence will any ideas come? Well — -we read 
our stories in class on the appointed day. 

Feb. Miss Thomas is away and we are having a "Poe-r" time. We are sure we'll 
all get lost wandering in the Valley of the Many-colored Grass, hunting for asphodels, 
or fall headlong into the "Pit and the Pendulum" before she returns! 

April. More stories! The purpose, we suppose, is to get material (fine, literary 
material) for the Monthly Muse. 

May. Our Sophomore days are over! 


Sept., 190S. Once again we gather in the Grove — seventeen of us this year. 

Oct. We take upon our slender shoulders the heavy burden of the editing of the 
Monthly Muse. Oh, the gigantic, the well-nigh impossible task of getting each month's 
Muse out on time! By hook or crook, we must secure material. If need be, we must 

"Force them (the girls), though it be in spite 
Of nature, and their stars, to write." 

Oct. 29. Explosion in the laboratory while Mr. Cruikshank was generating hydrogen. 
All terribly frightened, but no one hurt. 

Nov. "Important meeting" for purpose of organizing the class. Officers and flower ,, 
changed again! We are indeed a changeable class! Three new members, who expect / 
to graduate in two years joined us. ' / 

Dec. 15. Gun-powder plot in the laboratory! While testing the interactions of \ 
nitric acid and metals we came within an ace of using gun-powder instead of one of 
the metals called for. Fortunately, the plot did not turn out disastrously, but was 
discovered in time to be broken up! 

Feb. Alice Hines writes an Addison-Steele satire on the Merry- Widow hat. Hurrah 
for the satirist of the class! 

Mar. 4. History class met in the usual place at the usual time. An unusual sight 
greeted us — tacked up on the wall, a picture of President Taft's cabinet. Among them, 
as Secretary of the Navy, appeared the face of one of Mr. Stone's classmates. Mr. Stone 

Page Iff 

is a graduate of Harvard and most of his classmates have turned out to be wonders! 
How well we have learned this fact — -it is a matter of history with us now! 

April. Hazard P. taught English class for two days. We all recited perfect lessons. 

April 26. Three of our class— Ida, Mary Shuford and Janie, as three of the four 
Inter-society debators, engage in a spirited and lengthy argument on the Woman 
Suffrage question. 

May 10. Junior reception to the Seniors. Quite a success- — "novel, interesting; 
a striking success" read one of the prize telegrams. 

May 26. "Class of 1901), Plaintiff, vs. Class of 1910." Junior Class charged with 
the usurpation of Senior privileges; found guilty and sentenced. Key of Senior Hall 
presented for safe keeping and future use to the Junior Class. 

May 27. We bid the brilliant Class of 1909 an affectionate and tearful farewell. We 
step into their places and our Junior days come to a close. 


Sept., 1909. We return as Seniors. Seniors at last, after three years of hard work and 
struggle. Proud and dignified Seniors of St. Mary's! Tender guardians and advisers 
of the younger classes! 

Oct. Formation of Mr. Lay's Sunday School Class. The class is composed of the 
Seniors (the Lady Principal is always present also — ) and meets in the Rectory every 
Sunday night, It never lasts longer than half an hour! 

Nov. Fourth organization of the class. No changes this time except some of the 
officers. A class of eighteen graduates and one English certificate pupil— the largest 
graduating class of St. Mary's for a number of years. Naturally, we are very proud 
of the fact. Deaton G., after a year passed in the whirls of society, returned to the 
ranks of the brave Seniors. Mr. Stone was elected our honorary member. 

This was the first "important meeting" of the Seniors. Others, equally as import- 
ant, will follow in due time. 

Nov. 24. Class entertained by Mr. and Mrs, Stone. Opening of the social season 
for the Class of 1910. Our honorary member is a poet and the world shall know it. 
See "The Annual Edition of Win, E. Stone's poetical works" edited by the Class of 1910. 

Dec. Musing! Musing! Nothing but Musing! The girls run when they see us 
coming. Even the residents of Raleigh begin to fear us as though we were dread appar- 

The poor little Junior Class is forced to call on us for assistance with the Mont lily 

Jan. Vernon accused by our Ethics teacher of being a suffragette! Not a serious 
case, though — she merely thinks the mother, as well as the father, is the head of the 

Jan. 10-15. "Ad." week. Seniors worked up to a pitch. Lady Principal's time 

and energy exhausted in signing such permissions as— "Miss (or Misses) ask 

permission to go 'Musing!'" From 3:15 — 5:30 daily every senior visits the haunts of 
possible advertisers, crying — "An ad., an ad., my kingdom for an ad.!" 

Jan. 27. Monotony of work broken by the Peace Seniors, reception and informal 
voice recital. 

Jan. 29. Class again entertaincd^this time by Alice Noble and Ila Rountree. The 
President won the prize — very thoughtless of her! 

Feb. An eventful month. 

Ruth lias developed into a giggler and an optimist. 

Virginia in Psychology daily begs for a definition. 

Lost! Mr. Cruikshank s Psychology. What will Miss Pickel do now for a definition? 

Feb. Still Musing! We are determined to have an Annual, and to have a good one, 
and we are working harder than we ever worked in our lives. When the Class of 1910 
makes up its mind to do or to have a certain thing, the result is already assured. Let 
all who stand in our way beware! 

Feb. 7. Class beautifully entertained by Mary Mitchell. A class pennant presented 
to the class. 

Feb. 8. Class amusingly entertained at a candy-pulling by Janie and Ruth. Hefresh- 

. I wat i 

How many pins did Mr. 

1 find in his apron? 

ments — toothpic 

Feb. 11. Class songs adopted— words and music both by Mr. Hodgson." Mr. Hodg- 
son thinks we are very greedy because we want both of them. He says, also, that they 
are too frivolous for such a dignified class; but we don't agree with him. We unani- 
mously pronounced them "just too cute for words." 

Feb. 15. Class poet, prophet and historian chosen. Poet, Irma Deaton; prophet, 
Mary Shuford; historian wishes to remain incognito. 

Feb. 21. Seniors meet Miss Stone, Mr. Stone's sister from Greece. 

Feb. 21-26. Busy week. Material for the Annual must be absolutely completed. 
Croups of Seniors closeted in certain secret chambers thinking and writing for dear 
life — producing hits, biographical sketches, etc., and working up numberless "cute" 

Page 48 

ideas. Excitement and enthusiasm reached their climax Saturday night — the week 
of work culminating in a, most important Annual Muse Hoard meeting. 

Feb. 20. We have just awaked from "A Midsummer (winter) Night's Dream" and 
found Miss Thomas gone! Is Senior English, after all, only a fantastic dream? "1 
doubt it" say the Seniors, ''and shed a bitter tear." 

Hazard M. advised Meares L. not to take things too seriously! 

Mar. 29. Class entertained by Julia Coke. Advertisements guessed — Mr. Stone 
won the booby prize! 

Ai'H. 1. Dedication of the Annual. 

Apr. 6. Heated discussion in English class on the question of Hamlet's madness. 
Class saved from the dreadful fate of having to write essays on Hamlet by Furness's 
advice to students of Shakespeare: "Let me entreat, and beseech, and adjure, and 
implore you not to write an essay on Hamlet." It is our firm belief that Miss Thomas 
could not fly in the face of such an appeal! 

Apr. !). Joyous day! Lena returns to our midst. The Annual Muse Board picture 
taken — the poor, weary, overworked Muse Board. 

Apr. 11. "Piano recital by Miss Rebecca Hill Shields assisted by Miss Nannie 
Davis Lee" — the class prima donna. Did we think Rebe would ever need anyone's 
assistance in the musical line? 

Apr. 13. The five short and easy(?) questions given us on Natural Theology exam, 
might have been embodied in one general question — Discuss fully the subject of Natural 

Apr. 20. The Smedes Centennial Celebration. Holiday. 

Apr. 23. "The Japanese Girl" presented for the benefit of the Annual. Hazard P. 
descended from her Senior dignity to appear on the stage and have a "ripping, real 
good time" as one of the American twins. 

Apr. 25. Mary Shuford's recital. Another of our musical members covers herself 
with glory. We have so many gifted and talented members that it is truly bewildering! 

Apr. 26. The Picnic! What more need be said! Given by Rebe, Vernon, Ida, 
Mary Shuford, and Alice Hines to the class. Did anyone count the number of bananas 
Mr. Cruikshank threw over our heads and beyond our reach? 

Apr. 29. Discussion in English class of the characters and appearances of Macbeth 
and Lady Macbeth. Ruth gave a minute description of her idea of Lady Macbeth's ap- 
pearance; and Virginia came out with the startling announcement that she thought 
the lady looked like Hazard P.! 

Apr. 30. Janie and Virginia, forgetting the perfect harmony and agreement that 
always exists between the members of our class on all questions took opposing sides in 
the Inter-Society Debate! 

May 2. The entire Muse goes to press! This is a final step — nothing can be changed 
now. The die is cast! 

May 3. Essays handed in. Miss Pickel did write on one of her ancestors — we knew 
she would! Deaton I. has soared above our heads on "The Glory of the Imperfect." 

May 5. A strenuous day. We took the Peace and Meredith Seniors on a long 
railroad journey in the afternoon, and in the evening frolicked with our Faculty at a 
May party. 

May 7. Class entertained by Lena and Laura. 

May 10. Class entertained by Virginia, and the next week by Nannie. 

Fro., May 13. lla's organ recital. Brave girl! Though it was Friday, the thir- 
teenth, no ill luck befell her and she did "discourse most eloquent music." 

May 14. Another joyous day. Hazard M. returns to graduate with the class. 

May 16-1S .Final Senior exams. Fearful, awful, most barbarous things; but — oh 
we give a sigh of infinite relief — the last and final ones for us! 

May 19. Strictly private Senior entertainment given by the whole class to the whole 
class. Company very select. A crowning frolic after our year of hard work. We all 
agreed that we had truly had a "ripping, real good time!" 

May 22. Commencement Sunday. Our last Sunday! 

May 24. Senior Reception — at which the nineteen grave Seniors stood in dignified 
receiving line. 

May 25. Class Day — our own especial day. With all the necessary formality and 
gravity we laid upon the Class of 1911 the responsibility of upholding the dignity of 
the Senior Class — a responsibility which we have borne for eight long months. We 
really fear it will overwhelm the class of four members — they are willing to take the risk, 
though, so we let them alone. After these and other ceremonies, we gathered around 
the class tree and lustily sang the class songs. 

May 2b. Commencement Day. Graduating exercises in the Auditorium followed 
by closing exercises in the Chapel. A day of mingled happiness and sadness for us all. 
We receive our diplomas and parting, go forth from our Alma Mater, giving way to the 
Class of 1911. 

Herein have been set forth the chief events in the life and history of our class. To the 
class songs, we leave the pleasant fluty of singing out the praises of this great Class of 
1910, this "merry band of Seniors" who are "just too cute for words!"

Instead of peeping into the future and unfolding the destinies of the members of the 
class to the gentle reader, we would allow the gentle reader to take the peep for himself 
or herself, and content ourselves with supplying a portion of the presumably necessary 
data in the shape of 

9 prief Piograpfcical Bictionarp or QEHfjo'* 3iif)o 
in tt)t Class of 1910 

Chamberlain: — 

This lady is of an argumentative turn of mind. She loves to discuss the finer 
points of Psychology and to believes in Current History. She is very fond of Miss 
Dowd, in fact everything musical. We can hear her now playing in "their" little 
cottage on the farm. 

Coke : 

"Coke" is usually quiet, but has often been called down for talking in Psychol- 
ogy, She usually gets huge marks and she might be called smart, if more of her 
energy was not spent in carefully donning her cloak, hat and "kid" gloves to come to 
St. Mary's daily. 

Deaton, 0.: 

In 1938 Grace decided to stop school and become a "society lady" but tiring 
i)i the life of a debutante, she decided to honor the Class of '10 by joining it. 
She has been somewhat compensated for the lows of Society life by the various 
"Senior parties." Here's hoping that she has not made a false step. 

Deaton, I.: 

"Miss Earma" does not like the society of men or mortals. To books and 
nature she turns for rest and pleasure. As a result of these friendships she has be- 
come a genius, an author, and 1 a poet. May she continue throughout her life to 
inspire others as she has the Class of '10. 


Here's Jane from South Carolina. "South Carolina, first, last, and always" 
is her motto. Most people think she is a saint, but gee-whiz, they don't know 
Janie as we do. Although an opponent of woman suffrage, nevertheless by woman's 
ballot she was voted the most interesting and most influential girl at St. Mary's. 
Probably her influence has not been felt any where more than in her work as 1910 
Business Manager of 1 lie MUSE, 


She sings a pleasing song, says a graceful word and leaves one pleasantly im- 
pressed. "She is a leader among men." She leads the Chapel line. Lena is one of 
our hardest workers, but that does not keep her from taking an active part in all 
I he phases of St. Mary's life. During her Senior year she had appendicitis, but 
that did not keep her from drawing her sheepskin. 

Hazard, M.: 

Minnie is one of our very serious members. "English" she loves and adores 
and it is to "Miss Hazard, the great author," that the Class of '10, looks for its 
distinction. She never gets ruffled, not even in Logic, and the inhabitants of 
Senior Hall can truly testify, that she will allow no one to disturb her deep thoughts 

Hazard P.: 

Paula is the "baby" of the class in size, but in nothing else. She fears nothing 
:tnd nobody and delights in arguing even with the wisest of the Faculty. She has 
such insatiable curiosity, that she will find out every secret. She is ranked as 
one of the "smart ones" of the class, but when we analyze her dreams, what 
thoughts unrelated to lessons do we find there???? 

Page 50 


This is our authority on the latest styles. She is exceedingly frank and says 
just what she pleases, with no respect of persons. The various social events at 
St. Mary's have given her ample opportunity lo cultivate her great ability as a 
newspaper reporter; the numerous visits of the rats of S. H., ample opportunity 
to develop her vocal organs. 


Vernon, otherwise known as "our suffragette. " She is an earnest and conscien- 
tious worker, but takes no speeial delight in Theology. In the suffrage movement 
this year, she came very near being elected "the most literal." She loves to watch 
the beautiful sunset, which, by the way, "sets" over in West Raleigh. 


Like her most famous ancestor, Robert E. Lee, she is a general favorite. Nannie 
is not given to "burning the midnight oil," but she gets there just the same. Her 
special forte is singing and we believe that some day she will become a famous 
prima-donna and reflect additional glory on the Class of '10. 


"Ruth, the giggler." That is what she is noted for. She is a gesticulator of the 
very first order, a pantomimist to her finger tips, and an optimist beyond compare. 
Nothing ever worries her. A very plain spoken lady she is, but never hurting 
anyone's feelings, although the lady principal does call her "sassy." Ethics is her 
"pet abomination." 

Me ares: 

She is a changeable lass. She has remained true to one, but what of the numer- 
ous others? What mean these many different "mashes"? She loves to talk, she 
usually talks, but the "Lady Principal" iias a quieting effect on her. In her classes 
she'll pass, but in German she excels. 


Noble Alice is especially renowned for her noise. Sometimes she might work, 
but Math, is the only thing that appeals to her. She is a great lover of society, 
but no phase of society can equal "the Chapel Hill dances." Whenever you meet 
her you are greeted by "Aren't you scared to death about Ethics Exam.?" Now 
that exams, are over, we hope that the rest of her life will be spent in peace. 


"Pickle" always wants a definition. She loves to read, she loves to talk, she 
loves to study, but best of all she loves to write airy, light, dancing fairy stories. 
Her stories — and there are many — usually soar up high, up higher, up highest, 
but she comes to earth again in searching for original ideas for the Muse. 


Ida, the coquette of St. Mary's, is just "too cute for anything." She is usually 
care-free, happy and smiling, except when the grave responsibilities as President 
of the E. A. P. Literary Society overpower her. She is very dainty and exceed- 
ingly fond of cats. 


Ila is especially noted for her wonderful skill in getting advertisements. When 
she once gets started there's no stopping her. She'll work or play, whichever it 
may be, until she falls dead. She has proved herself a "smart member" of the 
class and a genius in connection with the organ. Whatever be the fate of the rest 
of the class, we all fear that her's is sealed. 


"Rebe" has been our President for two years and indeed one of our most thought- 
ful members, although at times she is very absent-minded. By her calm and 
demure expression she often deceives outsiders, but all the girls, even the Faculty, 
know how frivolous she really is. Rebe is exceedingly musical and it is a joy 
forever to hear her in the Thursday afternoon recitals. 

Shu ford: 

You can never tell about "Shu." One minute she is very frivolous and "jokey" 
and the next minute serious and solemn over the outcome of the "Annual." She 
has shown her ability as an able lawyer in two Inter-Society debates as well as 
in numerous discussions in class.

H\)t Comet Class 

(A reason for the peculiar brilliancy of St. Mary's class of 1910) 

A lonely comet wandering in space, wondering where it should go next, 
blase, having been everywhere, having seen everything, [lining for a new 
sensation, having all the time there was on its tail, and being unfettered 
by the restrictions that prevented the stupid stars from moving out of 
their weary circles, heard a rumor through those gossipy stars that, far 
away, something more brilliant than itself was to be seen. It felt imme- 
diately drawn that way, and turning, flashed through space at lightning 
speed and arrived in time to witness the graduation of the St. Mary's 
Seniors of 1910. 

Note : 

It is a fact (well known in convivial circles) that the vintage of champagne of certain 

years has a superior flavor, brilliance and sparkle. Such wine is known as "Comet 

Vintage." Recent scientific research has proved that the influence of ( !omets extends 

even further than Champagne vintages, and this fact, taken in conjunction with the 

'~^i. — . "^ well known history of the Comet of 1910 (Quoted above) goes far toward showing us 

,.— .^ how beautifully the forces of nature work together for good — for some folks.

The rambling ancestral mansion, deserted by the youth and joy and 
life of the old South, stands in silent solitude. Wild Cherokee roses 
twine tenderly around the crumbling pillars; sombre-hued mocking birds 
and tiny brown wrens circle about the high roof and make the stillness 
melodious with their mellow strains and trilling notes. The sun, sending 
its fading rays down the long, misty, oak-bordered avenue, sheds a soft 
golden light over the quiet scene. Draped with mournful, flowing grey 
moss, tinted silver by the setting sun, as sentinels keeping guard over the 
deserted grove, the great trees rise. The sun sinks lower, the shadows 
lengthen; the air becomes filled with mystic, fairy chirpings and twit- 
terings and with fragrant, intangible perfumes wafted into the silent 
freshness of evening. Deeper, and yet deeper, become the shadows, and 
the grove grows wondrous deep, as in the darkening sky, far, far above, 
the white stars peep out. The faint stirrings of innumerable wee crea- 
tures breathe through the warm, languid twilight; and the languishing 
south-wind blows and gently sways the tired, nodding flowers. Serenely 
the giant trees brood on in calm sadness, while the breezes mysteriously 
murmur among their branches and softly wave the drooping, grey, South- 
ern "banners." 

Fainter and fainter grows the lingering light; a silvery lustre is shed 
over all by the crescent moon; the drowsy flower-cups fall asleep in the 
"paleness and coolness of the night;" the birds cease their songs; all 
nature seems to rest, and the only sound that breaks the deep repose is 
the weirdly sweet call of the whippoorwill echoing from the fragrant 
depths of the near-by woods. 

"And whispered messages come down the wind, 
And whispered answers stir among the trees," 
as the gathering dusk, soft and kindly and strangely sweet, slowly wraps 'f 
the grove in a hushed, peaceful silence.

& Call from tfje OTUbtoooo 

Come, come away with me to the green wild wood, 

Where all is alive with the breath of the spring; 
Hearts overfilled with the rapture of childhood, 

Let the great wood with your happiness ring! 
Come, taste the joys that are yours for the taking; 

Open your ears, there are wonders to hear; 
Join with the earth in her gladsome awaking, 

For beautiful spring is here! 

Close-lacing branches their canopy spreading, 

Have made for your shelter a shady retreat; 
Wild flowers a carpet have strewn for your treading; 

Birds of the forest breathe song-music sweet. 
Come to the midst of this green, living gladness, 

That whispers the spirit a message of cheer; 
Leave to the hours that are past all your sadness, 

For beautiful spring is here! 

Irma Deaton 

&prtl &atn 

Sweet spring rain, soft spring rain, 
You tinkle gayly 'gainst the pane, 
Watering buds and dreaming flowers 
Wakening them to busy hours. 
Earthy-sweet is your warm breath, 
For you release from winter's death; 
Lightnings play with you, again 
You flash back sparkles, April rain. 

Gentle rain, inconstant rain, 

You weep and smile and weep again; 

You are like a maiden's tears — 

Hotly shed, till swift she veers 

To a bright and laughing mood, 

Light and dark her daily food, 

So are. you. And when we plain 

Grant our tears no deeper pain 

Than yours and hers, sweet April rain.

Cfje Albert H>mebeg Centennial Celebration 

april 20, 1910 

The historical event of the session of 1909-10 was the Centennial Anni- 
versary of the birth of the founder and first Rector, which was celebrated 
at St. Mary's April 20th. 

The Alumnae generally had been bidden to be the guests of the School 
for the occasion, and they were present in goodly numbers. There were 
about forty house-guests and numbers of other visiting Alumnae were 
entertained by friends in the city. The weather was beautiful and there 
was no untoward incident to mar the day. The Alumna 3 gathering was 
the largest since the Semi-Centennial Celebration in 1892. 

Though the day as a whole will linger long in memory it was especially 
marked by several events, among which should be mentioned the ad- 
dresses of Bishop Strange and Miss McVea at the morning exercises; the 
after-luncheon speeches in the new dining room culminating with the ideal 
toast of Mrs. Margaret Busbee Shi])]) on "The Poor Student"; the pres- 
ence of Mrs. Kate deR. Meares, for so many years such a prominent figure 
at St. Mary's; and the presence of Dr. Aldert Smedes' descendants — his 
daughters, Mrs. M. T. Leak (Bessie Smedes), Mrs. Chas. Root (Annie 
Smedes), and Mrs. W. A. Erwin (Sadie Smedes), his granddaughters, the 
daughters of Dr. Bennett Smedes and of Mrs. Root and Mrs. Erwin, and his 
great-granddaughters, Helen Smedes Latta (aged two), Mary Smedes 
Latta (aged two months), and Margaret Smedes Rose (aged three years). 

The program of the day was as follows:

Rev. Aldert Smedes, D.D. 

Founder and First Rector 


"I take this occasion to express publicly, as my judgment, that Dr. Smedes accom- 
plished more for the advancement of the Church in this Diocese, and for the promotion 
of the best interests of society within its limits, than any other man who ever lived in 
it. Under his care, and very much as the result of his intelligence, his firmness and hi s 
tender affection for them, there went out from St. Mary's School, Raleigh, every year a 
number of young girls who, in culture, in refinement, and still more in elevation of mora] 
and religious character, would compare favorably with the pupils of any other insti- 
tution in this country. He knew not only how to teach, but how to govern, and to 
make himself honored as well as loved; and to constrain his pupils to feel that the years 
spent under his care were at the same time the happiest and most useful of their lives. 
He has gone to his reward, but his work remains, and will remain from generation to 
generation." — Bishop Atkinson on Dr. Smedes, 1S77.

Mrs. Aldert Smedes 

The Helpmate of the Founder 


"To aid her husband in his great work, Mrs. Smedes brought all the resources of a 
brilliant and cultivated intellect, an unflagging cheerfulness and a quaint humor that 
revived him in hours of weariness and depression, and a wade-reaching and never-failing 
sympathy with the young. Possessing by inheritance and education an unfalterin; 
faith in the doctrines of the Church, she used them to cheer, uphold and console all w r ho 
came within her sunny influence." 

— Miss Czarnomska on Mrs. Smedes, 1887.

All who know St. Mary's, at all know that more than in most schools 
its influence spreads through the different members of a family; its tradi- 
tions go down from mother to daughter, so that it is not rare for all the 
daughters of a family for two generations to have been pupils here. 

This close kinship with the school the Alumna? Association endeavors 
to keep alive outside, but considering the large number of descendants of 
former pupils now in the school, it seemed wise to organize an association 
of these girls inside the school. This was done in the spring of 1909. The 
organization is not as yet in formal shape, but its aim is definite, in that 
it means to knit more closely the old traditions with new ideas, and to 
try to form a nucleus here in the school that shall later develop along lines 
of efficient service in the Alumnse Association.

It is the early hour of the morning. A soft gray twilight mist hangs 
over the earth, and in this dewy half-light the day is born. Out of the 
dim grayness, a cloud of purple lifts, and, rising, spreads over the eastern 
sky, shading at its lower edge until its paleness is lost in a delicate rose, 
deepening to a rich pink. And now the rim of the sun's great disk appears 
above the horizon, first a mere speck of brightness, then rising higher and 
higher, until it is seen a perfect round, a great pink globe in the midst of 
a wonderful sea of rose and gold, shining as through a delicate veil, touch- 
ing little clouds with a splendor that makes of them fairy islands, too beau- 
tiful, one would think, for mortal eyes. For a few moments it is thus, 
while the great ball slowly rises; then, emerging from behind the veil, it 
bursts in golden glory upon the earth. It shines upon the grass, and 
every blade sparkles with myriads of crystals; it shines upon the flowers, 
and each one opens its eyes and turns them toward the sky; it shines 
upon the trees, and they are alive with the songs of birds; it shines upon 
men, and they lift their hearts to God. And so the day is begun.

God's self-disclosure to one Book confined 

And there shown but as earthly sects would read.

In human nature, right's triumphant might, 

In God supreme and good, Who will achieve 

In ways undreamed, hid by this world's thick night, 

Man's destiny to perfect life and light.

I lay one night, the last night of the year, 
In slumber wrapped, when suddenly I heard 
A gentle voice that bade me rise and look. 
I looked, and lo, there came a little child 
With smiling eyes and wealth of sun-kissed hair 
From whose bright head a glorious radiance went, 
Like to the sun's; and in his arms he bore 
A wondrous book of bright and burnished gold. 

As thus I looked, rejoicing in the sight, 

I heard close by my side a long-drawn sigh, 

And turning, I beheld an old man stand. 

White was his hair, and white his flowing beard, 

And white his garments, all as while as snow; 

He, too, held in his arms a pondrous book, 

Once bright, but sullied now with many a spot; 

Yet in his eyes there shone a radiant light 

As in the eyes of one who hath done well 

And goes to his reward. The old man burned 

The last leaf of his book, and in a voice 

Both sweet and sad, addressed the fair-haired child: 

"I go, my son, and thou shalt take my place, 

And yet I know I have not been in vain; 

For in my book is many a golden leaf. 

I go to join yon shadowy, white-robed throng 

Of the departed years, to wait with them 

Until the time when in the bright New World 

We, like all else, shall be made new again 

To be forever and forever new. 

I pass, my son, give place to thee. Farewell." 

Thus speaking, he passed on, and, watching him, 

In the dim distance, I beheld a throng 

Of shadowy figures, all in white, as lie, 

Who parted to receive him, as he came, 

Then passed from sight. And suddenly I was 'ware 

My room was filled with light, and saw the child, 

Close by my side, where the old man had been, 

Holding half open his great golden book 

All full of promise for the dawning year. 

Then I was left alone; I woke and lo, 
The New Year's sun in radiant glory shone 
Filling my room with light, and in that light 
I saw the promise of the wondrous book 
Begin to be fulfilled; and I was glad.

How often have I wronged thee, gentle sleep, 
To thee have yielded with unwillingness, 
From those full days when as a child, my heap 
Of playthings called me from thy soft caress. 


On in the years full often have I fought 
And shunned thee that my energy might find 
A few more hours of active life and thought; 
But now, dear friend, seal thou my troubled mind. 


The hours of consciousness have throbbed with pain, 
Aspiring, bruised more than I may endure, 
Thou Kind Physician, Nurse, — thy child again — 
Grant to a wounded heart surcease and cure. 

V. R. B. P. 



The clouds of evening pale against the west, 
Their purple wavers mistily to grey. 
Their golden skirts assume the hue of rest, 
But faintly burning with the sun's last ray. 

From yonder cabin curls the fickle smoke, 
Its sleepy wreaths melt in the evening haze. 
The cloudy puffs and threads from smold'ring 
Ascend, still glimmering from the fitful blaze. 


Upon the earth the mists of darkness creep, 
A young bird cries, stayed is the old bird's flig 
The wind sings softly to the ferns asleep; 
The world is dreaming in the arms of night.

0! we are the girls from Wilmington, 

We live by the rolling sea; 
With hearts so gay we will sail away 

Wherever our port may be. 

Our captain rounds up his merry men, 
His crew so true and so brave; 

With his trusty mate we make up eight 
And we steer o'er the dancing wave. 

No matter what lands and scenes we find, 
No matter how far we may roam, 

Sail we East or West there's one place best 
Our good old Wilmington! 

"iflr. l^gaon" 

Being a very mild effort at extolling a friend not only of the Editors of this Muse, but 
of many Muses, and to whom the present Class is especially indebted for its Class 

Mr. Hodgson is an Englishman born and passed his boyhood in Man- 
chester. He came to America in 1863 as a very young man to join his 
uncle, a large merchant of Knoxville. Many were the experiences that he 
had in his boyhood in the English city and later in America in the thrilling 
days of the war, and his anecdotes, when he can be induced to give them, 
have never failed to delight. Though in his business life Mr. Hodgson was 
first jeweler in Knoxville and Norfolk and later organ-builder in Norfolk, 
where he is senior member of the well-known firm of H. E. Hodgson & Son, 
and though his official connection with St. Mary's is due to his having 
charge of the organ and pianos and making quarterly visits to care for 
them, he is best known to us as inventor and author. He has made inven- 
tions of various kinds, from bell-buoys to special types of engines; he has 
composed at least two operas, both libretto and music, and has written 
numerous songs and poems, almost always "in lighter vein." His opti- 
mistic philosophy is impressive and "catching." 

Mr. Hodgson is the elder brother of Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett, 
who wrote her early stories while making her home with him near Knoxville, 
whither she and his mother and other sisters came shortly after the war. 
His own writing began in his Manchester days, when as a member of 
"the gang" he wrote many occasional verses over the signature "Chaw Sir" 
which norm de plume he still occasionally employs, for with Mr. Hodgson 
the work is its own reward and his modesty is such that even this slight 
mention of him, inserted without his knowledge, may be unpleasing. His 
elder daughter, Miss Frances, was a St. Mary's girl in the '90s. 

Page 126 

Wherever you are, do your best, 
Leave the Lord to take care of the rest. 
lie lias given you life not for anger or striie, 
But to help, cheer, and love— and be blessed. 

— Chaw Sir 

Mr. Herbert E. Hodgson. 

For almost thirty years St. Mary's girls and St. Mary's teachers have come to know- 
Mr. Hodgson and find him their friend. They have danced to his music, sung his 
songs, admired his sketches, listened to his stories, enjoyed his lectures, and found liirn 
ever ready to cheer them up and help them to a pleasant hour. It is in a desire to show 
some slight appreciation of this friendship which St. Mary's feels for Mr. Hodgson that 
the Class of 1910 here presents his likeness and a few of the many productions that have 
had their peculiar place in the passing history of St. Mary's.

A little frog sat musing and soliloquized he thus; 

I don't see what's the use of making such an awful fuss 

Because one can't have all one wants and fortune sometimes frowns: 

A froggy's way through life, you know, is full of ups and downs, 

So when bad boys come running by and gather rocks to chunk 

I just hop to the water's edge, and in I go, "Ker plunk." 

I've got a little froggy wife, and* love her right along, 

Her dresses fit her nicely, but she's got an awful tongue, 

She loves to croak and croak and croak and tear things all to bits 

And if I happen to be there she simply gives me fits. 

But when she makes it too blamed hot and I can't stand the clash 

I just hop to the water's edge and in I go, "Ker splash." 

To fiogs I would a moral point, to tads adorn a tale 

And tell how better far it is to laugh than weep and wail, 

First work your very gizzard out to make things go your way 

Then if you can not make them go just tell them, "Durn you, stay!" 

It doesn't pay to sit and croak, so when you've lost the trump 

Just hop down to the water's edge and in you go, "Ker slump." 


If you see a man walking 
At leisurely pace; 
Just loafing along 

With a smile on his face, 
He started on time, you will find. 

Another conies scurrying 
Hurrying, worrying, 
His face all awry 

And an outstanding eye — 
He started a little behind. 

All the leisure in life, 
All the pleasure in life 
Belongs to the man that's on time. 

M H>erenabe 

Still so gently o'er me stealing, 
Like the distant thunder pealing, 
Comes a low, deep sound, revealing 
She sleeps — ray lady sleeps. 

As I sing beneath her casement, 
Her sweet slumbers shake the basement 
And I fear the roof's displacement; 
She sleeps — my lady sleeps.

Welcome to tfje glutmtae 

[Read by Miss Paula Hazard for the students at the Smedes Centennial Luncheon, April 20, 1910] 

The wild, untamed Alumna 1 is ramping through the Grove, 

It is ramping through the Basement, it is ramping up above. 

The timid little scholars are hidden round in holes, 

With terror in their faces and horror in their souls; 

They fear the wild Alumna? will drag them out in bunches 

And take them to the dining room and serve them up for lunches. 

They fear for scenes of carnage; they fear for deeds of blood; 

Where frightful great Alumna' drag scholars to the wood 

To eat them at their leisure, or — tell them (in the cool) 

How things were done in out day, when we were here in school, 

Or give them admonition as to how to cut their dresses 

Or lecture on the sin of wearing rats among their tresses; 

Or give them goody-good advice on the subject of the boys 

And show them just how wrong are tilings one really enjoys. 

These thoughts were dreams of yesterday, and certainly not nice, 

Our hearts stood in our bodices like chocolate sundae ice. 

We heard that you were coming and naturally took fright 

But all our horrid dreams of you have vanished with the light. 

Our dense and total ignorance must stand as our excuse, 

We didn't know a "wild, untamed" when we saw i( running loose. 

How could we know that Al-um-nae wore really stylish hats? 

And some of them, it's plain to me, are not averse to rats. 

How could we know that Al-um-nai were really folksey folks, 

Just full of fun and jollity and running o'er with jokes? 

We're really glad to see you and glad to have you here, 

We've bid adieu on seeing you to every foolish fear, 

Our hearts within our bodices have melted all the ice — 

We're really glad to see you and we think you're very nice.

A little maiden sat beneath a budding tree, 

A prettier little maiden you need never wish to see. 

The birds were singing sweetly and the roses fair 

Were rilling with their fragrance all the sweet spring air. 

Then why, O why, does that maiden sigh, 

And look so doleful and almost cry? 
Companions she has plenty, for around her play 
A dozen pretty maidens on that bright spring day. 

Then what can be the matter 

Why she does not even chatter, 
And the laughter of her playmates seems an idle empty clatter- 
She shrugs her shoulders, bites her lips and shakes her curls, 
And then in scorn and anger cries, "They're only girls." 

A-drizzle, drizzle, drizzle, falls the driving rain, 

A cold and howling blizzard sweeps across the hill and plain, 

The little maiden's sitting in a cold, dark room 

And everywhere, both in and out, is gloom, gloom, gloom. 

Then why, why, does that maiden sigh 

And look so happy and almost cry? 
Her comrades all have left her, there remains not one 
Of all the pretty girls that played in spring's bright sun, 

Then what can be the matter, 

What means that happy clatter! 
Her laughter trills, her little tongue goes clatter, clatter, clatter, 
Her laughing eyes are full of life and dance with joy; 
She's only one companion now, but he's — a boy. 

W&t 9. anb Jffl. Cabet 

I sing a little song, and I will not make it long, 

All about an A. and M. cadet; 
I do not know his name, or just from whence he came, 

But I know he's got brass buttons on, you bet. 

Though his head were solid mutton 
That, beautiful brass button 

Would excuse the slight deficiency above; 
It's not his handsome face, 
His smartness or his grace, 

But those buttons, those brass buttons that we love. 

His learning isn't great, and his eyes are not quite straight 
And I must confess his legs don't look too stout; 

He's got a turned up nose, but the buttons on his clothes 
Will send the town boys to the right about. 

When loaded up with books, how very brave he looks, 
No doubt he'll prove a terror to his foes; 

To be without cadets, those darling, charming pets, 
Would be the very worst of human woes. 


We show him by our smile how much we like his style 

And value and invite his dear caresses; 
We show him by our style how much we court his smile 

For we wear his bright brass buttons on our dresses.

Miss Elizabeth Hinton-Le 

"3 JTugt Hotoe ler to BtStractum!" 

"Oh, there goes Miss Smith! Isn't she dear? I think she's just too 
cute for anything — the way she smiles, and her eyes just dance, and send 
out splinters and sparkles of fun before her face smiles. And then she 
laughs out loud, and the fun just shakes her all over. Then haven't you 
seen her talk? Her face just glows with what she says, and she rolls 
her eyes up just a little, and draws her eyebrows together a little, and 
then she pierces you with one of her bewildering glances. It's just darling; 
1 heard one of the teachers say the other day she was the most interesting 
person in school, and that she had real fascination. 

"She has the clearest, cutest ideas! There isn't anything in the world 
she hasn't made up her mind about, and she expresses her opinion in the 
most positive way. You just ought to see her lay down the law; and arch 
her neck and grow hard and cold when she strikes an idea she doesn't like. 
It is perfectly adorable. And the way she listens to what you say makes 
you think your own remarks are really deep and important. Isn't she 
precious, when you make some objection she can't answer? And if she 
is sort of embarrassed for words to express exactly her opinion, she 
clasps her hands tighter together and kind of bends over her desk and 
smiles a little 'till she says what she wants to with her eyes as much as 
her lips. 

"Yes, she's a teacher. I couldn't love just an ordinary girl. But 
teachers are not in the same category as girls — they are sort of superior and 
noble and above the common run. But it's mighty hard to love a teacher — 
the}' are so scornful, and pretend to be indifferent and above silly mashes. 
All the same, they eat all the candy their mashes bring and I think maybe 
she likes me. She's just nice to other girls because she thinks a teacher 
ought to appear impartial; and do you know she chose me out of all the 
class to go to the office, and get our new text-books. I went on wings 
of joy, and coming back, I kissed the top book all over because I thought 
that would be hers, but lo and behold she took out of her drawer an old 
copy she had at College, and the kissed-all-over book went to that nasty, 
red-haired Mamie Jenkins. I nearly cried. But I made up for it after- 
wards, because when everybody was gone, I took her old book and kissed 
it inside ami out. 

"Yes, I carry her flowers and candy sometimes, but I just feel so un- 
worthy! Nothing is good enough for her. And I don't dare venture near 
her room without a real good excuse or something very interesting to say. 
And yet I can't keep away. I just long to be where she is with glad ec- 
static feelings swelling my heart with fear. I wish I was a picture on 
her wall or her pillow, so I could be near her all the time. I just hunger 
for her; and do you know the other day I saw her with a man! I was so 
jealous and sore I could hardly bear it. And the impudent piece had 
offered her his arm! I could have slain him for his friskiness. Well, 
if she gets married my heart will die within me. A cold chill of sadness 
seizes it at the thought. But all the same, nearly all the girls get married, 
and if she would really be happier, I suppose I wish her to have what is 
best for her."

Down into the sea the sun dips low, 
The heavens are bright with their last glow; 
While slow departs the lingering flay, 
And evening bells chime far away, 
Of you I'm dreaming, Margareta.

On the rock's rough ledge my head I lay, 
About my feet the foam-waves play; 
A dream steals o'er me, on the strand, 
A stranger in a stranger's land, 

Of you I'm dreaming, Margareta.

Thinking their thoughts and tearing their hair 

(What an Easy Chair is theirs!) 
But the thoughts they think and the words they say 

And the work of their heads and hands 
None but the Editors ever can know 

Can hope to understand. 


The Editors look on the finished Muse 

(Ah vigorous thoughts are theirs!) 
They know it by heart; no need to peruse, 

(A well-finished work is theirs!) 
And the joy they feel at their work complete,- 

That well-finished work of their hands 
None but the Editors ever can know, 

Can fully understand.
